Vestas wins 65MW Swedish order

SWEDEN: Vestas has been awarded a 65MW order from developer OX2 for a project in eastern Sweden.

Vestas will supply its V126 turbine to the Swedish project

Vestas will supply 18 V126-3.45MW turbines — uprated to 3.6MW — to the Hogkolen project in Ljusdals. 

The turbines, which will be equipped with de-icing systems, will be installed and commissioned by Vestas from Q2 2018. The order also includes ten years' servicing.

Vestas said it was the fourth order from OX2 in 2016, a relationship that has lasted ten years so far and covered 900MW of capacity. 

In August, OX2 awarded Vestas the deal to supply the 112MW Raskifet project in eastern Norway.
